Sunny, very still, fairly warm. I believe there was a slight frost last night. Saw the white owl again yesterday evening. Limed part of the vacant patch, the part nearest the raspberries. That bit is not to be manured are I want it for root-crops. Dug a little more of the patch by the rhubarb. Soil here rather sour & must be limed when dug. Cut down the runner beans & added a layer to the compost heap. Made up a little more of the garden path.

Sold 4 cockerels for 9/- – poor price but they were very small.

3 eggs!

    Oh-uh. He’s seeing a white owl. This bodes ill…

  2. Nine of the new Ju88 dive-bombers attack warships at Rosyth, Firth of Forth. An unexploded bomb penetrates the cruiser HMS Southampton. HMS Edinburgh also sustains damage. The crew of the destroyer HMS Mohawk suffers casualties. RAF Spitfires, piloted by “part-time” pilots of the Glasgow and Edinburgh Auxiliary Air Force squadrons, engage the German aircraft.

    Yes, we mustn’tbe too narrowly nationalistic (George wasn’t). What is happening to and being done by our gallant allies?

    only three eggs? what’s going on over there?

  5. Note the incongruous exclamation point. It caught my attention this morning.

    I think it is a metaphor, a commentary on the Egg Count!

    Yes, strange exclamation point.

    At this point, the second Sino-Japanese war has been going on for two years, and stands at somewhat of a stalemate. What an odd time it must have been to be alive.

    Also, rhubarb pie sounds funny, but it actually tastes great!
